LONDON -- A group that acts on behalf of Formula One teams is being disbanded because of financial issues, likely giving more control of the sport to Bernie Ecclestone. Damontre Moore Jersey . Formula One Teams Association secretary general Oliver Weingarten says the organization collapsed over unpaid subscription fees and a failure to strike an agreement for 2014 with all 11 teams. Seven teams were officially in FOTA last year. Weingarten tells The Associated Press that the "teams will probably think they can exist and fight their own corner but there will be something when they will realize they will be stronger in numbers." Weingarten predicts there is a "crisis around the corner" in F1. Chris Jones Jersey . Toronto ended an 0-4-0 skid with Sundays shootout win over visiting New Jersey, but the club could have a difficult time making it two victories in a row tonight. The Maple Leafs have dropped three straight and 11 of the last 12 regular- season meetings against Boston overall and the Bruins have claimed six straight in Beantown. Keith Smith Jersey . -- Canadian ski cross star Marielle Thompson accomplished two goals in one race Saturday.ZURICH, Switzerland -- FIFA wants to improve footballs concussion protocol by stopping matches for three minutes while team doctors assess players with head injuries. After high-profile incidents of injured players staying on the field at the World Cup, FIFA said Tuesday its executive committee will confirm a proposal that gives referees new powers to halt play at its two-day meeting starting Thursday. The board includes Belgian doctor Michel DHooghe, who chairs the FIFA and UEFA medical committees. "The incidents at the World Cup have shown that the role of team doctors needs to be reinforced in order to ensure the correct management of potential cases of concussion," FIFA said in a statement. UEFA adopted the three-minute break protocol last week and will apply it in Champions League matches from next week. In the World Cup final, Germany midfielder Christoph Kramer played on for 14 minutes against Argentina before being substituted when clearly disorientated. FIFAs lack off formal rules was highlighted when Uruguay defender Alvaro Pereira ignored his team doctors advice to be substituted. Terrance Williams Jersey. Pereira appeared to be briefly unconscious when accidentally struck in the head by an England players knee. The updated protocol gives team doctors more authority. "The referee will only allow the injured party to continue playing with the authorization of the team doctor, who will have the final decision," FIFA said. In other decisions from the medical meeting Monday, the panel advised against travel bans for African countries affected by the Ebola outbreak. The Confederation of African Football has banned international matches in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. However, the panel "advised the postponement of any non-essential and non-urgent FIFA courses there," FIFA said. FIFA security director Ralf Mutschke had been due in Sierra Leone to help investigate an alleged attempt to fix a 2010 World Cup qualifying match. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
